Model Agathe Chapman gave us a guided tour around her breath-taking home just off Brick Lane in East London. Filled with unique treasures her mother Tiphaine de Lussy has sourced and artworks by her father Dinos Chapman, the family home - formerly a derelict string factory - is a museum of discovery yet retains a homely warmth and vitality.
It's had a huge effect on me, they've made sure I have a good background knowledge of art. My mum's always shown me amazing clothes, taken me to great exhibitions and made sure I have fun with the way I dress, and not to be scared of looking different. Her amazing style has definitely rubbed off on me, and the same goes for my taste in architecture and interiors.
I like quite brutalist, modern architecture and 1970's interiors like my parents' houses represents that so well.
What do you love about living in the Spitalfields area?
If I've really done well in life than I see myself living by the beach in some place in the Caribbean. My dream house would have a huge glass window all along it, facing the beach so you could see the sun set and rise every day. It would be very modern with Brazilian wooden floors, concrete walls, and very open plan with high ceilings.
It would have a great big kitchen that opens on to the outdoor for parties and chilling out. It would be very spacious with loads of bedrooms so my friends could come over and stay whenever.
After running around at castings, how do you relax at home?
I get into my dressing gown as I'm a huge fan of loungewear and hate wearing anything uncomfortable at home. Then I make myself a tea and a snack and watch loads of shitty reality TV like Real Housewives of Atlanta just to numb my brain for a bit after all the stress.
I can't lie, my favourite interior is probably my parents' house in Kent which is a huge concrete reservoir turned home. It's very harsh and brutal, but warm and cosy at the same time. It's a beautiful house with an incredibly simple yet pure interior.
